AHOY SHIP 72,

SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 0900 HOURS at MILL POND, ORLEANS

This will be a real treat. We will launch a surfboat and row Mill Pond into Nauset Harbor. (post card setting)

We will practice commands normally used as well as some that will be used from trailered boat in 4th of July Parade.

We will learn how to launch and how to haul boat onto trailer from the water safely.

We will go rain or shine. “BE PREPARED” (scout motto) for any weather conditions.

Remember you are a SEA SCOUT, not a fair weather sailing sailor in a yachting program! You are taught to handle what might be thrown in front of you so you will be prepared for what happens on the water which can be carried over to” LIFE”!!!!

Bring: Gloves,….water, snack, sun block, rain gear etc. and be prepared to get foot wear wet. NO FLIP FLOPS WITH OUT HEAL STRAPs.

WE WILL HAVE FUN, LEARN, JOKE, EAT AND WE WILL DO WHAT MANY CAN ONLY DREAM ABOUT DOING !!!!

The temp. was just right and a pleasant different row was experienced than the windy row at Arey's Pond. I think the crew is starting to experience that every trip on the water is different, even at the same location which they will soon experience.

James had a pre-run of towing the 25 ft. surfboat which he will do in the Parade. The crew had a pre-run of the OAR SALUTE that we will do at the Judges stand on the 4th. Hats and dress polo shirts will be ready for the parade.

We appreciated Paul Cass from Lower Cape TV shooting more film of Ship 72 and another of our events.
  1. The first pic is when beached at Pricilla's Landing after starting out from Mill Pond.
  2. The second pic is returning to Mill Pond with Steve McLeod at Sweep Oar. He felt right at home.
  3. The third pic is from Grand View Estates, the opposite side of from the landing from where we launched the boat showing Robert's Cove and the opening of Nauset Harbor.

Another good event for NAUSET SEA SCOUT SHIP 72.
